Artist Mike Mason in his studio.

In order to protect the health and safety our guests, our community, and our staff (who are over the age of 65 and are deemed to be a high health risk), the Gallery is closing its doors to visitors through April.

“This decision comes after careful review of guidance from public health authorities and projections for the spread of COVID-19, and reflects our desire to ensure it is not contributing to transmission of the disease which could overwhelm our health care system. This is a difficult decision, but we are confident is the right choice.”

Please re-visit our previously published blog post articles throughout this time.

Questions or concerns, please email fairweatherkd@gmail.com.

Thank you for your understanding.

 

March 14, 2019 Question to the Fairweather artists.

Q: “Here is an idea. Please send images of the art being created in your studio during this crisis. We will publish  a blog post and keep it updated as you share with us what you are creating. Are you interested? Let me know your thoughts.”

 

 

“Wonderful idea! Here is a couple of teaser photos of what I have been working,”  woodworker Mike Brown

 

“I am painting in my art studio.” Toni Avery

 

“Social distancing doesn’t require you to become a shut-in. I go outside to paint,”  en plein arist Emily Miller.

 

“In addition, I’m finishing up a few smaller baskets for a large collaborative display of reclaimed fishing rope ( ghost net collected by Cape Lookeout rangers).basket sculptures called Undersea Garden.”  Emily Miller

 

“I like this idea! You can use this one and will try to send a few more. Thanks for the up date about the gallery,” artist/ Professor Emeritus of Art Pacific University Jan Shield.

 

 

“It is my plan to create tomorrow, I would love to send some pictures while I am creating! I have been wondering how things will go with all of this virus worry.  If there is anything I can do to be of help, please don’t hesitate to ask.”  Rene’e Hafeman, jewelry designer.

 

“Here is an image of a book I just published in early 2020 on a series Weekend Projects  I tried to provide day-by-day instructions different projects which use one common element: stringers. Thanks for the proposal. I think it’s very useful to have a venue that helps especially during the crisis. I’m working now on a couple of new big works and will share photos as soon as I have them completed,”  fused glass artist Fyodor Zubanov.

 

“I have scheduled kids art on-line classes (ages 8-18) all week in three different time zones: Central Europe / US East Coast / and US West Coast time. We are learning how to draw puffins!”   Leah Kohlenberg www.leahkohlenberg.com/book-online

 

 

“Hope everyone is staying healthy! I’m staying home painting.” Pam Haunschild

“This strange virus has affected everyone.  We are 3 weeks behind the Italians infections so things are going to get way more interesting.  I appreciate the information and understand if other schedules need to be altered.  Thank you for keeping me updated. Stay safe!” Jan Rimerman, Artist/Art Administrator.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has  issued guidelines for “community mitigation strategies” to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, which include recommendations for “social distancing”—a term that epidemiologists are using to refer to a conscious effort to reduce close contact between people and hopefully stymie community transmission of the virus.

 

 

  • Be in nature. Breathe fresh air. Notice things about the world around you that you didn’t see before.
  • Start birdwatching. Coronavirus hasn’t bothered the birds. Find out what species nest near you, dust off your binoculars if you’ve got ’em and download a birdwatching map.
  • Make art. Whether it’s a page out of a coloring book or paint-by-numbers masterpiece, a knitted scarf or a piece of pottery, creating will ease your mind and keep your fingers nimble.

 

 

“Thank you with the list of things to do.  It’s one of the most uplifting ones I’ve received,” artist Sandy Visse

Eve Marx Just in from CA: Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday called for home isolation of all seniors and those who are health compromised in the state of California and the immediate shutdown of bars, nightclubs, brew pubs and wineries to help stop the spread of coronavirus, now considered a global pandemic.

In addition, Newsom said all restaurants should reduce capacity by half and provide “deep social distancing.”

“For ‘Life Abundant’  my paintings  are part of a series of regional paintings of forest, vineyards, wheat and lavender farms of the Tualatin Valley in Oregon.” -Jan Shield, Professor Emeritus of Art at Pacific University, Forest Grove

 

Read more about the artist…

https://www.oregonlive.com/hillsboro/2012/02/retired_pacific_university_pro.html

Jan Shield was at Pacific University in Forest Grove for forty years, twenty one of them as chairman of the art department. His tenure is the longest of any professor in the school’s history.

 

 

“These paintings express a sort of witness to the soil becoming the grass and how plant life abounds joined in a harmony of space and form. No doubt the influence of Da Vinci’s fascination with life, the movement of water, and his brushwork called sfumato (softness of all edges) is evident in my interest in the flow and modulation of color and rich contrasts that beyond being representational. From a slight breeze in the early morning to the enclosure and stillness of the coming of late afternoon before darkness … I keep painting.”  Jan Shield

 

 


“Some of my  new work is very abstract, textural done for the pure enjoyment of itself, more expressive, experimental and highly representational  to environmental responses.”  Jan Shield

“For April my works are full of energy to create a feeling of the air merging with the trees and fields where from the earth they grow.  They express a sort of witness to the soil becoming the grass and how plant life abounds joined in a harmony of space and form,” Jan Shield, Professor Emeritus of Art at Pacific University.

 

“I was commissioned to create for the new Astoria Memorial Cancer Planetree Hospital/ CMH-OHSU Knight Cancer Collaborative.  A Select number of seventeen regional artists were requested to make work for the interior spaces along with Richard Rowland of Astoria to create a large anagama fired ceramic entry mural.  My painting is an acrylic on canvas, 6ft 8in by 3ft 4in related to a forest visit.” Jan Shield

Paul Brent at Fairweather House and Gallery. August 4, 2018

About the artist.

Paul Brent is an artist whose work has become internationally known to represent the coastal lifestyle. From his watercolors to his recent oil paintings he captures nature in its best and most idyllic form. While being best known for his beach subjects, he has painted landscapes that are equally indicative of his talent to recreate all aspects of nature. He especially enjoys painting local scenes and beachscapes that he views near his two home studios in Panama City, Florida and Seaside, Oregon.

He has been profiled in many publications including the Wall Street Journal, Coastal Living, and many more. He is a signature member of the National and Florida Watercolor Societies and a member of the Society of Illustrators. He had authored a book on watercolor instruction titled Wonderful Watercolors and illustrated the children’s book J. Rooker, Manatee.

About the artist.

Jan Shield, Professor Emeritus of Art at Pacific University, creates art at his Dancing Trees Sanctuary. “It is my home, studio and forest preserve in Newberg, Oregon. It is an environment of thick fir and maple forest blanketed with lush ferns and punctuated with sun lit meadows.” Through his paintings, Jan Shield shares a deep regard for Oregon. His art is a comment on naturalism, environment, light, space and at times, symbolism. The beautiful CMH-OHSU Collaborative selected art from Jan Shield to support the healing environment in their new facility in Astoria.

 

Grace note

“My husband and I were in your gallery last month and loved the art  displayed.  Our family reunion is a memory of a lifetime.  Because of this, a commissioned piece will hold special significance.  I have several pictures of the Rockaway Beach home we stayed in.  I took some pics of the rock formations, sea grass, , and rocks to give a feel for where we were.  Though the rocks were down the beach always, I would like them to show up a bit more so took a close up of them.  They don’t need to overpower the serenity of the scene howeve…”

 

If you would like to commission a painting of your home on the coast please contact us. (503) 738-8899
